java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException?

LifeCycle Exception - Crunchify

Are you getting below exception while running Spring MVC Project in Eclipse?

Tomcat 7 is not starting when a web application(with a servlet) is attempted to run. The server works well when I only have a html page. But when I try to add a servlet and add it to tomcat.Then the server does not start and gives an error saying “Tomcat 7 didn’t start in 45 seconds”. I increased the timeout but nothing happened. Well – here is a quick tip to solve it.

Try coping commons-logging.jar file to WEB-INF/lib folder.

common-logging -jar - Crunchify

You can download it from here.

If you have Maven Project then just add this to your pom.xml file.

Once adding jar file to WEB-INF/lib folder follow below steps:

Spring MVC Class Path

  • Name

    If you add jars in tomcat’s lib folder you can see this error

    • http://crunchify.com/ a.shah

      i’m not sure if this is related but we shouldn’t touch tomcat’s lib folder and library :)

  • aritra

    I had the same problem, can you please help regarding the following stack trace? my server says starting but never starts, I have waited 166 minutes for it (after increasing the timeout)

      Hi Aritra – It seems some issue with servlets named [connect] and [zulu] are both mapped to the url-pattern [/connect] which is not permitted. It would be very hard to debug remotely but if you could export and send project via email then I would be able to take a look deeper.
